Josh did THREE parties for me! Two pool parties in my backyard and my daughter's Christening! He absolutely shook the street down! I had neighbours asking me about him as soon as he was done packing up his car after the gigs.
An excellent variety of music, very very portable, a party mover and a definite "innovator". Well worth the money! Check him out!
Josh's outgoing spirit was the main reason I chose him to be the deejay at my daughter's thirteenth birthday party. We rented out the top floor of a restaurant and he had all 30 teenagers dancing!
He also brought a DJ box that he showed the kids how to use, and they had a great time learning how to "scratch". His rates were very reasonable as well. I would hire him again in the future.
Thank you Josh!!
Josh did an incredible job for our Grade 7/8 dance. He was able to tailor his services and style to the needs of interests of the students.
The show was fun and interactive and the students did not want the dance to end. He took student and staff requests and was extremely responsive to our needs.
If you want a DJ who can blow the roof off the house, Josh is your man. I don’t think that there is a tune or a music style that he does not know. He is one of the most engaging DJs I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He keeps the energy level high and the excitement builds with every song he spins.
For weddings, his natural romantic personality will have everyone crying tears of joy! Everyone will get up to dance to this gifted DJ’s exciting music choices. Is it a dance party? You will want to hire Josh again and again; he never plays the same repertoire twice. Whether it be a party for children, teenagers or golden agers,
Josh has an intuitive gift for engaging people, making them laugh, sing and dance.
Josh was the DJ for our wedding in December 2015. He did an absolutely fantastic job at keeping our guests on the dance floor and loving the music.
He took requests and played
an excellent variety of music.
He was inviting, funny and engaging on the mic and kept the ball rolling. We had many compliments about the music and our DJ throughout the night!
Our guests had a blast dancing at our reception at the McLean House, Sunnybrook Estates thanks to Innovative Sounds. Our DJ Josh combined our favourites songs, the styles we liked and read the mood of the crowd as the evening carried on.
It was romantic! It was fun!
He was reliable in every way and the music sounded great. I’d highly recommend them!
Josh DJ'd our Muskoka wedding. His easy going and professional manner made working with him a breeze from the first point of contact through
to the end of our big day.
We requested to have music played at our outdoor ceremony followed by an indoor reception. Josh not only accommodated our request, but he made the transition seamless! Josh worked with us to create the ideal soundtrack for our special day.
Josh is a friend of ours and we were thrilled when he agreed to DJ at our wedding. We knew he was reliable, fun, and would go out of his way to make sure we were happy. Josh's initial questionnaire got us thinking much more about the music and
services we would require.
Before that, we had only considered a first dance song and our processional music. He was happy to let us dictate as much as we wanted and stepped up to fill in the rest. Josh met us at our venue to run through our schedule and decide where equipment would be set up. He made suggestions to strike a balance between a traditional ceremony and what we had in mind.
Our plan for Josh involved music at three different spots throughout the venue; he was up for the challenge! He provided microphones and two separate amplification systems. Throughout the evening, he kept our guests happy by mixing current hits with more contemporary ones. He made sure to play our requests, and kept our guests on the dance floor. We couldn’t have been happier with our decision to have Josh as DJ at our wedding.
Josh was our DJ for our wedding in the Muskoka area. He made the planning very easy and really listened to what we wanted for our big day. Having a summer camp as our venue could have made it very difficult for a DJ, there were a lot of factors he had to work around in the rustic setting, but it seemed that nothing fazed him.
He made our day so stress free, because he had everything completely under control, even through inclement weather in an outdoor venue. The ceremony music was perfect and he had all our guests dancing all night long at the reception.
We had many guests come up to us after and tell us how great the music was and how professional Josh was in all aspects of the day. I would HIGHLY recommend Josh to anyone getting married who wants a stress free day and amazing wedding music.
Energetic, funny, confident, creative - these are all qualities that make Josh such a fine DJ and MC. Josh uses high quality equipment that won't let you down. We had dancers that were busting with energy and others guest that wanted mellow songs, Josh read the crowd and found a balance that met many of our guests needs.
As a DJ he willingly incorporated requests, and as an MC he was comfortable waiting to receive information about the schedule.
It was great to work with someone who was flexible enough to go with the flow as the itinerary evolved throughout the night. The event went very smoothly, Thank- you!
Joshua Ball is one of those rare teachers who inspires students by fostering the belief that they are music-makers, through resources and strategies that are traditional and cutting-edge.
Our students have had the opportunity to compose original songs, rap tunes and instrumental pieces using traditional instruments and digital media (iPads, electronic keyboards and Garage Band).
Students of all ages have found a musical ‘voice’ in Josh’s classroom. It is a common sight to have students cheer wildly when their teacher tells them it’s time to go to music class. It is equally common to see music students play original compositions on electronic keyboards along with a Steel Pan ensemble.
Josh’s ability to engage each student is a testament to his own passion, creativity and skill; he also demonstrates enormous empathy for students who are reluctant or
lacking in self-confidence.
His enthusiasm is infectious and his heart bigger than Neil Peart’s drum kit! His personal mission is to have all students love music as much as he does, and he is very successful at it!
Elementary School Principal
Joshua Ball presented a series of four 2 hour
GarageBand Workshops for the TDSB last year.
I attend all four workshops and learned a great deal about how to use GarageBand as a program and how to utilize its strengths in the classroom.
His presentations were very well organized with multiple examples, and included lots of hands on time with the program. The workshops were for TDSB teachers, and all who attended agreed that they learned a great deal.
Prior to the workshops, Joshua and I discussed what our learning goals should be and how best to deliver this to our teachers. Working with Joshua was a pleasure, as we both share a passion for music, and thoroughly enjoy teaching.
I can give Joshua Ball an excellent recommendation.
